Sample Programs Offered
Art has been part of my life and is a skill I use as a form of nourishment and self-care. Creating arts for healing is my passion. I offer the participants a fully engage experience which starts with a question to ponder. Then participants are asked to work individually on each project. Each participant uses either “watercolors, acrylics or crafts” to finish each project. After the individual work is done then there is a group discussion which immediately connects participants not only with their inner self but to each other. Each participant is asked to share with their partners or groups what was their experience while doing the exercise. Each individual share their experiences to form connections among them
